Use Worksheet #1 to determine projected forage inventory and grazing unit intake demand.

Use Worksheet #2 to determine the projected stocking rate for each grazing period. Note that the calculator will calculate the pounds of paddock residual. This is as important as the livestock you are feeding. Residual that is cycled through the rhizophere provides carbon and other nutrients for the soil microbes and ends up as plant available nutrients. These livestock are essential to maintaining soil health, a functioning soil, and less inputs such as fertiizer and pesticides.
